Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktops, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems to choose from, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of well-trained developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and respond in 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you'll get top-level support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you are able to modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you won't need to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You are able to choose the Debian Operating System with each VPS server package that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you can find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you need to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either with no Control Panel or with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, due to the fact that you will have full root access and you will be able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be limited, yet you will be able to control your online content via a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have a lot of time to take care of your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have substantial experience, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will take care of the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a single click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you will install later will perform in the optimal way. Picking a server with no Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to control everything using a console. A server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all the software that you'll need for your websites. Although with the latter option the root access will be limited, you can manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this kind of website hosting service. If you buy our Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis in order to make sure that you have the latest and most safe edition.
